There's an App for that

In 1991 Hersey's had a Valentine's promotion where you could send chocolates and tulips to your sweetheart. My husband and I were to be married just two months later and we were separated by half a state, so I did it. I sent him chocolates and tulips. The message on the card from me said: "Tulips for now, two lips forever."
Yeah, I know, kind of cheesy. But now, every time my husband sends me flowers, there is a tulip or two included -- and our florist loves it!

The little quilt (17"x17") below has been accepted into a juried exhibit at our local art center. The theme is two-color quilts. It is called "Tulips for Now". If you have a smart phone, you probably know what it is. If you don't, it is a QR code, sort of like a SKU code read both directions. Guess what this one says.

I will be offering patterns for different short saying to be made into quilts or cross-stitch pieces in my etsy shop really soon.
UPDATE: I have a listing for custom orders HERE Please check it out.

Not cheesy at all, very cute and very clever.

That is so dang clever, Miss Emanda! I love it! Tulips are my sister's favorite flower so I always think of her.
Enjoy the day.

I LOVE color! said...

That is just too cheesy:>) Love the word games you play. The quilt it is just amazing. You do the most amazing things because you are so creative. I am eager to see what you do with patterns.
